Talking with Angela Parr, Muay Thai fighter

Mexican-American Angela Parr combines a successful MuayThai career with motherhood - not two careers which often go hand in hand. Starting in California, she now fights out of Brisbane, Australia and trains with her fighter husband John 'Wayne' Parr. Competing in this sport now for 13 years she won a Gold medal in the IAMTF world championships in Thailand and went on to fight professionally at home in the States and down in Australia.
There comes a time in any athlete's life when you wonder "Is this it? time to stop?" Women often find that balancing training with raising children  is a juggling act but Angela is proof it's not impossible. Watch her above prepare for a fight against Nicole 'Pixie' Brolin in February 2010. Enjoy!
